RulesWe're a pretty low-pressure, free-spirited bunch here, and we allow a wide range of things to be posted as fills, but we do have a few rules:
- All works should have a happy ending. While things that induce Warm and Fuzzy Feelings (WAFF) are preferred, there can be some level of angst, but there needs to be a happily ever after.
- When you sign up, you will receive a card made up of twenty-five squares – twenty-four prompts from a random number generator, and a "wild card" in the center. There is a lengthy prompts list, so you are allowed to veto either entire categories of prompts (e.g. kidfic or hurt/comfort) or ten individual prompts, for any reason.
- You are allowed to sign up as an individual or as a team—or both. However, if you and someone else sign up as a team, you must collaborate on each prompt you fill on your card.
- Each prompt on your card is open to your interpretation. For instance, "labor" could mean "The baby is coming right now!" or it could be about someone pouring their heart and soul into creating the perfect gift for a loved one or into achieving their lifelong dream. "Accident" could be something like a car accident, or about two people accidentally bumping into each other again and again and again, until one of them goes, "Hey, maybe there's a reason for this." And prompts that mention "loved ones" or "relationships" could be talking about a romantic relationship, a close friendship, family, or someone/something else.
- All fandoms are allowed. All pairings are allowed. Original works are allowed. Art is allowed. Baked goods, or, heck, even things like lolcats are allowed. If you've got an idea that fits your prompt that isn't one of the more traditional kinds of challenge fills, you're welcome to use it. Variety is welcome here. Get creative! :D
More specific information about our requirements can be found in the FAQ and Rules Post, which we highly suggest reading before signing up.
- All works should only be posted during this round of Cotton Candy Bingo. You may create sequels to previously-posted works, as long as these works stand alone, and you may use a Cotton Candy Bingo work for another challenge, as long as you also mention Cotton Candy Bingo and as long as the moderators of the other challenge will accept it.
You may not re-use previously-posted works as fills for a prompt. If you've made something previously that fits one of your prompts but haven't publicly posted it anywhere before...who's gonna know? ;)
- Each prompt must be filled individually. A fill may contain elements of multiple prompts, but it will only count as a fill for one. You may fill a prompt more than once.
- While the challenge is running, you are only allowed to post links to your works on the community if you have achieved a bingo, or, after a bingo, if you have achieved one of the extras listed here. You will not receive points if you do not link to your fills on the Cotton Candy Bingo community during the round.
During amnesty, you no longer have to wait until you've achieved a bingo before you post, as you will not receive points for these fills.
- You will not be posting your works directly to the community. Instead, you will be posting them elsewhere – on your journal, an archive, a personal website, or some other site. They are your works, and you may post them wherever you want, as long as they are unlocked and remain unlocked until the end of amnesty. When you link to them here, however, you must use the account you signed up with. If you need to take something down before the end of amnesty, or if you need to switch to another identity, get in touch with us ASAP.
Once you are ready for posting, you should use the following template for your post: Posting Template
- If you do not post anything to the community by the end of the amnesty period, you will still be allowed to participate in the next round. However, you will only be allowed to request a single card next time, even if you achieve a bingo.
- Though this challenge is aimed for the fluffy end of the spectrum, if your work does contain any of the following, you must warn for it in your content notes: Character death, extreme angst, graphic violence, rape/non-con, dub-con, incest, or underage (younger than 18) sexual activity. However, you may not "warn" for slash, femslash, or het – you may indicate that these are featured in your work, but not warn.
If you are typically a choose-not-to-warn author, and your work contains one of these things, please clearly state that you Choose Not To Warn or consider using the highlight-to-view-warnings code listed in the Posting Template.
- Be nice to each other. Fandom is full of a diverse range of people, each person with their own ideas and opinions. This is meant to be a happy place—stirring up drama kind of goes against that, no?
- Be sure to read the FAQ and Rules Post, which covers the most details about our challenge, including length requirements, goal suggestions, and other important information. If you've already read this and would simply like to quickly check out our fill requirements again, those are located down here.
- Also be sure to check out our Scoring page before or after you begin.
- If you have any questions or any problems, please, please do not hesitate to contact us, either via PM or firstname.lastname@example.org
- Have fun!
